    Default Brandon Roy is a fan of Ross

    Roy took a liking to Ross quickly.

    “When I first got to see him, I thought he was a really good player, I didn’t know how long he would stay in college, he had that kind of (quality) game,” he said.

    Roy’s instincts proved correct when Ross left the Huskies after two seasons and became the eighth pick of the 2012 NBA Draft. Roy stayed four years at Washington and went on to become rookie of the year in the NBA. That won’t happen for Ross, but Roy says he shouldn’t worry about it

    “(I’ll) tell him don’t pay attention to not playing much now, you’ll have a long career and once he figures it out, he’s going to be a very talented player.”

    It's pretty surprising how a former 3-time All-Star in Roy would be such a fan of Ross. I really hope Ross has as good of a career as Roy hopes he has...

    Because of the irony? Long career, Roy...

    Nice words from Brandon, though. Let's hope Ross pans out.

    Alma Mater stick together like white on rice. I'm sure Rudy Gay once had the same praise for Hasheem Thabeet

    Any positive feed back is good feed back. I would like to see Casey find more minutes for him. Less 2 PG's on the floor at a time and more Ross.

    Dwayne Casey as well lives in Seattle and has access to the univ. there...so was in a position to get any special insights into Ross.

    Remember when Kobe was raving about DeMar?

    Hopefully he continues his recent play and finally starts to justify it...

    We need to see more of T-Ross on the floor. Seeing the Calderon/Lowry back-court is getting on my nerves, for it gives up too much size defensively. It's only effective for a short period of time, while coach Casey thinks otherwise.
